Winter morning

By NickDent
I pass this tractor regularly but only tend to photograph it in the snow. Only tweaked the contrast a little.

Im sure it looks better in the snow!

Perhaps you could have moved in closer and more to the right to exclude as much of those houses as possible, - would look better without them I think, - but I dont know whats on the left!


As it is its quite nice, however the scene needed a positive exposure compensation due to the snow, which should appear a little brighter and less blue, as in the mod.

I found a picture entitled "Abandoned Tractor" in your portfolio, Nick, and find it an excellent closeup of this vehicle. In the image you present here, I feel that the tractor is still the main subject, but that it doesn't have enough detail and is rather dark. I realise you have gone for the wider view, but there is little else of interest really. Frank's idea is a good one.

Franks suggested composition sounded rather good, so I've had a play to simulate his idea, & created a mod. just out of curiosity ????

Thanks for the mod Niknut it does look alot better like that. I'm no where near as proficient in photoshop to attempt such wizzardry! What did you do to it?

Hi Nik.......Croppped the top to help put the tractor on the upper third; then extended the 'Canvas' down at the bottom(Image > Resize > Canvas);
Now make a selection of the bottom part of the image, everything below the tractor, hit Ctrl+J to put it on it's own Layer, the go to Image > Transform > Distort,
now drag the bottom edge down to fill the extended canvas, & finally drag the bottom RH corner to the right to stretch the image into the corner; flatten the layers
when your happy with the new composition; & finally crop off any rough edges..............job done !!!.......have a play at it, it's great fun how you can rearrange
an image..........

regards....Keith.
